Course Overview

Following the timeline of the K12 History program, third grade Art lessons introduce students to the art and architecture of the Renaissance throughout Europe, including Italy, Russia, and Northern Europe. Students will:

  • Extend their knowledge of elements and principles of art, such as form, texture, and symmetrical balance
  • Draw, paint, and sculpt a variety of works, including self-portraits, landscapes, and still life paintings
  • Investigate artworks from Asia, Africa, and the Americas

    review by Eileen on 7/13/2016

    This course is extremely interesting for both the student and parent ! It presents a vastly enriching experience into the world of art/art history. The Art course parallels the period of history studied in the 3rd grade and nicely ties in with the history lessons. The student learns all aspects of the art of the period. One of my favorite courses!!!
